Two things that should normally never be combined — each one interferes with the enjoyment of the other. Nonetheless, a great night out with the local NYC animation community last month. I shot some video and took some pictures of Bill Plympton, Fred Seibert, Dan Meth, etc., and then sat down and drew gorillas with everyone.
I’ve been working on character design for an educational project. I signed a nondisclosure agreement so I can’t post anything until product is released by the client. Stay tuned.
I’ve also been writing a long article on traditional animation combined with Flash. A guy named Hayk Manukyan, from Glendale, Ca. has a site called moollt.com where he gives video instruction on his process. I’ve definitely learned a few things from him. The article appears in next month’s aNYmator, the newsletter of ASIFA East, the NYC metro area’s animation association.
